Tollefsen, with the help of strength coach Yngve Apneseth at Optimal Trening, will step up in weight to take this bout at 75 kilos / 165 lbs. The Frontline Academy fighter first made his name with his medal at the 2014 IMMAF World Championships. Since turning pro, he has earned two wins and then a loss in his latest outing at IRFA 9 in a unanimous decision to Guram Kutateladze.

It will be a tough matchup for the traveling fighter that will take on Smith on his home soil in Scotland. Smith will return to MMA after getting a submission victory back in 2011 at SFC 5.

Tollefsen is one quarter Scottish, so may have a little support for the visiting fighter.
